Excerpt Reveal: Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward

Book Description

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.

When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.

When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Is that what your friends call you? I like that. Thanks for the answers.
That’s an interesting question—why tonight of all nights? Well, I saw my ex tagged on Facebook with another woman, and that put me over the edge. But it’s more than that. Lately, I’ve developed a strong attraction to a good friend of mine, and that’s sort of screwing with me a bit. He’s actually temporarily living in my condo, but he’s someone I’ve known for years. I’ve always thought he was extremely handsome, but it’s complicated. He and I would not be a good match romantically. He’s not the monogamous type, or at least, he never used to be. We’re better off as friends. He was also the best friend of my ex years back, so there’s that. Having him around, though, has made me more sensitized to my sexual desires. Little things like the waft of his scent, the way he touches the small of my back when he passes by me in the kitchen…it’s like my body is on this constant state of alert. So, I was thinking if I could just—for lack of a better word—get laid, maybe I could get this feeling out of my system.


My jaw was open as I just sat there staring at the screen.
Holy shit.
I read it again.
And again.
And again.
I honestly didn’t think that Amber felt that way about me. She would always make jokes about me being good-looking, but her attraction to Rory proved that her taste wasn’t exactly conventional. Now, I really felt like shit for invading her privacy, because there was no way she would’ve been okay with confessing that to me. I never imagined any of this had to do with me. I’d assumed it was solely about Rory.
She wanted to use another man to f*ck me out of her system?
That revelation left me shocked and confused—not to mention hard as f*ck thinking about the fact that Amber wanted me.

Cover Reveal: The Hook-Up Experiment by Emma Hart

Book Description

1.Hate-screw my high school nemesis.
2.Remember to hate him.
3.Prove my brother wrong.
It should be easy.
It isn’t.

As the owner of Pick-A-Dick, New Orleans’ premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I’m the one who gets to sift through the dick pics—except this time, they're required.
My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-Dick’s sister dating site, doesn’t believe it’s possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love.
I disagree. I know it’s possible.
And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane. The guy who asked me to junior prom and then stood me up. Who egged my car when I rejected him, and convinced my senior homecoming date to ghost me.
It should be easy to hate-screw him. If only he was still that person, instead of a hot-as-hell single dad, working as a builder to make ends’ meet, fighting for custody of his daughter.
Not to mention packing in the pants department...

Three hook-ups.
One outcome.

Reed by Sawyer Bennett

Book Description

The offseason is heating up for one Carolina Cold Fury heartbreaker who’s eager to make nice with the girl next door. 

No one plays like Reed Olson, whether it’s hockey season or not. After back-to-back NHL championships, he’s craving a little R&R. Reed leans to a specific type—blond, busty, and interested—and fortunately he has a little black book full of options. So why is it he can’t stop dreaming about the new girl who just moved in next door? A certified brainiac, she seems to want nothing to do with the hard-bodied athlete.
Josie Ives desperately needs something her celebrity neighbor obviously doesn’t: solitude. Reed is everything she imagined—a little too good-looking, with a body that puts Greek gods to shame. But she didn’t expect he would also be funny and charming. Josie knows she’s the opposite of his type, and that’s fine with her. Still, the chemistry between them is undeniable. Their newfound friendship certainly has its benefits, but she’s starting to wonder if opposites really do attract.

Reed is the tenth book in Sawyer Bennett's Cold Fury Series.  Surprisingly, I've read most of the Cold Fury series, but I've only reviewed Hawke.  Weird.  Anyways, I've really enjoyed reading this series.  My favorite is Zack, the third book in the series.  Each book focuses on a different Cold Fury player and can be read as a standalone.

Reed Olson was looking forward to his summer of no strings sex after winning another Stanley Cup with the Carolina Cold Fury.  But after a night of "okay" sex introduces him to his new neighbor, he can't seem to get her off of his mind.  Their friendship eventually adds some mutually appreciated benefits.  

But when life and outside insecurities arise, will they be able to realize their feelings for each other are real?

Defiant Queen by Meghan March

Book Description

The Mount Trilogy continues with

Defiant Queen...

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .

Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.

UGHHH!!!!! I LOVE THIS TRILOGY!!!!! Like, I'm obsessed.  I don't I've been this excited/riveted/anticipated of a trilogy before.  EVER.  I consumed this book in one sitting.  I even went back and re-read Ruthless King right before I read this one.   

Once again, THIS IS NOT A STANDALONE!! You HAVE to read Ruthless King first.  Which means... yes, these end on a cliffhanger.  And, HOLY CLIFFHANGERS!!! If these books weren't released about a month apart, I think I'd go crazy.  So if you aren't a fan of cliffhangers but want to read this trilogy, Sinful Empire (the last book) is scheduled to be released December 19, so pick all them up then!!  

Defiant Queen is just as fasted-paced and action packed at Ruthless King.  As readers, we get a little more insight into the deadly and mysterious Lachlan Mount's past and how and why he became the man he is today.  What started out as a debt turns more complicated for Lachlan and Kiera as secrets are revealed and as outside forces close in.

Cover Reveal: Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland

Book Description

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Ever since Hurricane Irma down here in Southwest Florida, I have been in somewhat of a reading slump.  I don't know why.  I just haven't really been reading anything that just GRABBED my attention throughout the entire book.  But when this little gem showed up on my kindle, I couldn't but it down.  

Kids need a bath.  Okay, play in bubbles for an hour while Mommy sits next to you and reads. 

This was an exciting read.  Ruthless King is the first book in the Mount Trilogy and IT IS NOT A STANDALONE.  These books need to be read in order.  And because of that, I don't want to get into the what's, why's and how's for this story.  If you love Meghan March and her writing, just know this book does not disappoint.  

AND THE CLIFFHANGER!! OMG.  Luckily, we won't have to wait to long to read the next book!! Defiant Queen is scheduled to be released November 14, 2017.  LESS THAN ONE MONTH!!
